    I totally agree with hs305's notes, one of the best Caol Ila I've tried.

  3. hs305 scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    [December, 2019] I had this dram during a private vertical Caol Ila tasting session.

    In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 92,5. My notes state a complex and balanced dram without flaws and I found it worthwhile to do some more detailed notes (see below).
    • Nose
      91 91
      waxy, toffee-vanilla, earthy (pine needles), dunnage warehouse, minor winey impressions, peat (of course)
    • Taste
      91 91
      grassy, autumn floral, shy fruits, waxes, oils, peat (of course)
    • Finish
      92 92
      creamy mouthfeel, no distracting moments, more waxy and autumn floral than the taste, fruits open up towards the end nicely

    For me by far the best Caol Ila I could have tried. Lovely balance and still a lot of power (54.5% alcohol) which delivers a lot of taste!
